How does edge molding polyurethane work?

The edge molding polyurethane is dispensed into a mold which fits around the table top and cures in place, leaving a seamless urethane table edging around the perimeter of the table top when the mold is removed. These easy-to-use edge molding compounds can be pigmented by the user to create any desired color.

You need polyurethane edge molding products that are as durable as they are decorative, providing protection for the edge of the laminate and any items coming into contact with the molded edging. Table edge molding polyurethane cure times can be adjusted to fit your manufacturing process needs.

Polyurethane Edge Molding Compounds:

Epic RM2013

Epic RM2013 is a low viscosity (about 1,700 cP) edge molding polyurethane elastomer with a Shore hardness of 80A (medium soft rating). Its hardness rating is in line with that of a leather belt, the sole of a shoe, and tupperware. The tensile modulus is approximately 500.9 PSI (3,453 kPa). The A scale on Shore hardness indicates a flexible material. Epic RM2013 can be penetrated with some serious effort, and is still soft enough to allow molding. This elastomer boasts a quick gel time of between 1.5 and 3.5 minutes, allowing for swift de-mold times and rapid part changeovers. This also provides original equipment manufacturers (OEM) a more malleable production schedule, making their manufacturing process easier.

Epic RM2014

Epic RM2014 is a low viscosity (about 2,000 cP) polyurethane elastomer used in the manufacture of edge molded table tops. With a Shore hardness of 65A (soft rating), this edge molding polyurethane is a great choice where the end user would like a softer feel to the edge mold yet needs assurance of its ability to properly protect the covered surface from anything coming into contact. Shore A scale denotes a flexible polyurethane. The 65A rating puts the Epic RM2014 in the same category as car tires and rubber bands, and just below the common hardness of 70A. Its tensile modulus is approximately 352.1.
